Much of the music from nineteenth and early twentieth-century America reflects both the racial stereotypes and social prejudices of the era.  Users should be aware that racial slurs, epithets, pejorative terms, and racially stereotyped images and instances of blackface, redface, and yellowface will be encountered as they search the site.

The use of these terms and images is presented for historical study and in no way reflects the attitudes of the site's creators or maintainers.
